Fire Damaged home in Scarsdale, NY Fire Damage Clean Up in Scarsdale, NY

If you have recently suffered a house fire, you don't want to do a DIY job, you should contact a professional residential fire restoration service. Cleaning up fire and smoke damage is not something an amateur should attempt. 

1. Special Equipment is Necessary

You are not going to clean up smoke soot or be able to perform fire smoke odor removal with a dust mask and a bottle of degreaser. Fire soot cannot simply be wiped away, it requires deep cleaning of all surfaces. Deep cleaning is needed to remove residual odors by professionals who have the knowledge and experience to perform safe and thorough fire restoration.

Another factor with cleaning and attempting to perform smoke smell removal is you cannot launder your clothing in your home's washer. Using your washing machine could damage and leave undesired odors in the machine. Dry cleaning techniques are necessary if you want to salvage the clothing in your home.

2. Preserve Some of Your Property

The untrained eye looking at the fire and smoke-damaged property might determine some of it should just be disposed of. Without understanding fire restoration processes and techniques, you could throw away property you didn't have to. Fire and water restoration companies can minimize your loss after a home fire. The property that is not salvageable and has been contaminated can be properly thrown away.

3. Shorter Recovery Time to Return to Your Home

It is not a straightforward task to clean smoke damage and fire soot from a home. There is a lot of property involved that has to be inspected to determine if it can be salvaged, or needs disposal. You will also run into insurance claims to report the fire's financial impact. The entire fire and smoke damage clean-up process can be difficult and stressful. Fire and water restoration companies understand this process and provide you peace of mind when you leave these matters in their professional hands.

When you attempt a DIY process to clean up your home after a fire, it could easily backfire on you. You could throw away property that could easily be salvaged, or incorrectly fill out your insurance papers. There is also the time it will take you to perform this type of cleanup, which could significantly delay your getting your life back on track or being able to move back into your home.

Statistics show a fire disaster can happen at any time from any number of causes. If this happens to you, reduce the extent of the damages, and ensure your safety, and that of your family, by contacting fire restoration services. A fire restoration service is familiar with all aspects of this disaster and will perform a much quicker, safer, and thorough recovery process, so you can put this difficult time behind you.
